  1. Congrats to all the winners! Last week was so fun and this week is promising to be the same...it is Seekerville though so I'm not surprised! Happy Birthday ladies!!

  2. Congrats to the winners!!!

    So Mazzios after the book signing... I seem to remember something about Mazzios in Oklahoma Reunion...

    We haven't had a Mazzio's here in about a decade... Don't think I ever ate there but DH loved it.

    And with that, it's bedtime ;).

    ReplyDelete
  3. The Blogger editing gremlins are attacking tonight.

    IGNORE THE FONT ISSUES. I will prevail.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yep. Mazzions and a stop to Braums for a Cherry Lime aide are on my TO DO LIST.

    Along with the Philbrook Museum and Jenks and ORU and and and...

    ReplyDelete
  5. Wow...great giveaways! Congrats to all of the winners! Tina...did you mention cherry limeade?! Mmmm...that's sounds really good. I might have to put that on my to do list this week. I'll have to settle for Sonic, though. Small town GA : ).
    Blessings~Stacey

    ReplyDelete
  6. I love Sonic diet Cherry Limeades as well. And if I could spell that would be even better.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Congrats to the winners. Next week sounds like fun fun fun. i'm gonna party like it's 1999.

    Here's praying you learn to spell, Tina. Could be useful at your signing.

    ReplyDelete
  8. WhooHooo! Lots of prizes. Congratulations to the winners.


    Seekerville has the bestest birthday bashes ever.

  9. That gotcha contest sounds interesting. May have to give it a whirl.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Tina~

    Carol told me its my turn to ask you about visiting after the book signing. I see that she already mentioned it. I think there's still a Mazzio's in Branson, but I could be wrong. Melissa would know...

    Cherry limeade is wonderful. I like the cranberry too if it's mixed just right. But I can't take diet.

    I got my copy of Oklahoma Reunion. Expect to see (and sign) it in Tulsa.

    This is an amazing party, and I'm gonna work hard to stop by more often.

    Bedtime sounds good, but I have some blog work to do. I'm having my own birthday bash starting Monday. It's my first. Nothing so grand as Seekerville. But I am giving a few things away.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Okay I just read my comment, and it looks like I think the book signing is in Branson. Have no fear, I know it's in Tulsa.

    I also think there's a Mazzio's in Branson.

    The two are in no way connected, just my stream-of-consciousness writing. Virginia Woolf would be proud.

    /yeesh/

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ha ha, Pinson. :)

    Look forwarding to signing and eating my way through Tulsa.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congrats to all the winners.
    I of course finally gave up on trying to win the Seeker books I want right now and splurged at the store today =)

  14. I can not believe this...I beat Helen!!!!

    Congratulations to all the winners.

    Seekerville Authors...you are SO much fun!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congratulations to all the winners! The seekers are such an amazingly generous bunch.

    Great week ahead!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow such a generous bunch... This is so much fun! Congratulations to all the winners (me me me 2!!!)

    You girls are outdoing yourselves. Seriously. And more to come?

    Well - it's time I hit the hay. Y'all have a great rest of the evening/morning celebrating. Catch ya on the flip flop.

    (did I mention that I won? and a MG book too! sooo excited!)

    toasting Seekerville!!! byeee!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yep, there's still a Mazzio's in Branson, not that I've gone there in like a decade, when I return to Branson, I go for the .....wait for it....thrift stores! Nothing says "I grew up in Branson" like I go to Btown for the thrift stores. But there are like 10 in a 1 mile radius in downtown Branson/Hollister when there aren't even 10 in my ENTIRE county!

    And now that I've answered Andrea's way off topic pondering, I say thanks for the giveaway I won! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ok, my heart just stopped! But then I remembered there are two Virginias around here.
    Which won the printer?
    Which has the cuter avatar?

    Wait! Don't answer that!! Hahaha!

    I HOPE it's me... but I still love Seekerville if it's not.

    Just polishing my query for the contest. Scarrrryyyyyyyy. Not the query. Just sending it out... Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  19. P.S. Melissa, I have no idea what town you all are talking about, but I love thrift stores! With six kids, I can't buy everything from catalogues. :) Well, I could but then we wouldn't eat. And that would be a bummer. Thrift stores are so fun when you get something new and perfect for just a few bucks. Makes my day!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Looking forward to another great week to party. Sparkly confetti is flying!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Huh, my post got LOST!!!

    Rose did beat me, but I posted later and went back to my writing. Now I see that the coffee didn't make it.

    Apologies.

    The coffee pot is now set.

    Helen

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm pouring a cup of your coffee, Helen. Smells wonderful!

    Congrats to the winners!

    Love this month with all the goodies we're giving away!!! Tell your friends to stop by so they can share in the fun!

    Mary and Tina in one place, at the same time and signing...oh my gosh! Won't that be a hoot! Someone send pictures, please.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Branson has Thrift Shops?

    Interesting.

    I see the beginning of a suspense story...shopper---hmmmm? Named Ruthy, perhaps?...travels to Branson...enjoys the sights...shops at the Thrift stores--all of them--loses her wallet that's found by the villain who tracks her down and demands a ransom from the Seekers...Captain Jack arrives in time to save Ruthy, who returns to the Village and is crowned Queen for the Day...

    Okay, okay, it's early and I've only had half a cup of coffee...

    To be continued...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congrats to all the winners. All of the posts this week were awesome...I actually won something. I'm so excited. What do I do now?

    P.S. I went to a mini one-day conference for my RWA chapter yesterday and passed on this site to anyone who would listen, because I LOVE you guys so much.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Virginia, yes it's you, dahling!!!!

    :)

    And if you send me your snail mail addy, I will hook you up!

    Teeeeeena..... I'm so proud of you, going back home for this book signing.

    Is it true they're re-paving the streets in your honor, dear?

    And did they really rent a red carpet? Because you're SO WORTH IT!!!

    Eating your way through Branson.

    I LOVE THIS!!! ;)

    Now that's a weekend to remember.

    And then a month to behave before Thanksgiving.

    PERFECT!!!!

    Hey, I went over to Wendy Lawton's blogs on proposals... Oh my stars, wonderful advice, guys and gals. Just plain, Wendy-wonderful!

    AND...

    I got in the Nicholas Sparks blog about not finishing....

    And I'm staying mum......

    Because we've all been there. But all I can picture is that poor woman....STILL DYING AFTER ALL THIS TIME, SHUT IN A HARD-DRIVE DRAWER!!!!!

    OY.

    Cake this morning. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, right? Alan Jackson assured me this is so!

    :)

    Lemon creme cake with lemon filling and white mountain frosting. And I almost NEVER make white mountain frosting, it's the one frosting that's a pain in the butt...

    But for this cake????

    Nothing but the best!

    Congrats to all the winners!

    Question: You say you're moving to the village. Does that mean Seekerville blog is literally moving to a different blog?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, Mazzios!!!! I really miss Mazzios Pizza!!!! Eat a slice for me, girls, would you?

    I can't believe it's been a year since I first met you all. Yep! Your fourth birthday is my first anniversary with Seekerville. You gals hooked me, reeled me in and I've been here ever since. :D Thanks for all your great advice and encouragement over the last 12 months! And for the new friendships, too! Love you all!

I was a winner in the "2-pack" - can't remember, do I have to "choose" something or are books just sent to me??? Aren't I just full of questions this morning!

  48. Woo-hoo! My kids are doing a happy dance. Our printer is almost unusable, but we still let it have a place of honor near the computer. It likes to PRETEND it can do the job. :)
    Now I have to check out the Nocholas Sparks site for the dying character...
    I checked the site for the call for unfinished Great American Novel... but I just can't imagine how they would put that in a show! Maybe hook you up with Seekerville for mentoring?? (Now that would be cool...

  57. Congrats to this week's winners. I'll have to add the Yankee-Belle Cafe to my Google Reader subscriptions. I think I make a pretty good chocolate chip cookie too, Ruthy, but I had no idea that Ghiardelli, my favorite dark chocolate maker, makes chocolate chips too. Gotta find them.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Tina - I'll bring cookies. Especially if it'll make you like me more.

    We may be bringing Cindy Herron too. She wasn't sure yet.

    This is also my 1 year Seeker Anniversary. What did ya'll do without me? ;)

    Or more likely, what did I do without ya'll?

    You've introduced me to some AMAZING authors. Given me some way cool prizes. Helped me find my long lost, Appalaaaaachaaaan [note the a's there] spicy twin. More incredible authors. Encouragement. Helped me find my voice [in a comment Missy left either on my blog or here after I linked to my blog one day]. So many amazing things.

    All because Mary posted on the loop about how to gift books on a Kindle.

    Thanks Mary.

    :D

    As long as I don't have to decide which one of ya'll I like best...

  86. Good grief! Looks like I missed most of the party! I just love all you ladies. It was such a treat to meet Mary at the ACFW conference and to connect with Julie again. Can't wait to read her post. Love to you all. Mags

  88. Wow, another busy day in Seekerville! I've been out and about. Church and a bridal shower for a co-worker's daughter.

    Congrats to all the winners, and especially to Virginia M. That HP printer is a great prize! I just got a new printer/fax thingie. Just gotta figure out how to get it going...

    Seekerville is such a fun, busy place.

    Tina, you don't need to know how to spell. Nowadays you don't even have to know people who do. That's what spell check is for.
